A whimsical wedding in the woods with mix-and-match bridesmaid dresses.



One of our absolute favorite bloggers to work with is Kara of Whimsy Soul–her body-positive vibes and sunny attitude are such a perfect fit for Fame and Partners. So when she asked us to help create custom, mix-and-match bridesmaid dresses for her wedding, of course we said yes!


Kara’s wedding took place in the woods of Wisconsin, and mismatched bridesmaid dresses perfectly suited the dreamy, whimsical theme.


To create these dresses, we started with a color: pale blue. Then, each bridesmaid got to decide the kind of dress she would feel most comfortable in–for some, that meant a wrap dress. For others, a fit-and-flare silhouette was the most flattering. And for one bridesmaid, a simple slip dress felt right.


Finally, the bridesmaids decided on final details based on their personal styles. The result? A truly personal mix of ruffles, frills, bows, and statement sleeves.


Kara herself even changed into Fame and Partners for the reception! Her customized white Sasha Dress was practically made for dancing.


Kara says, “Everyone says your wedding day goes by in a flash and I, being stubborn, was sure that it wouldn’t happen to me. But it did. The whole day felt like someone had hit the “fast forward” button. There’s a lot of moments that are blurry to me, but I do remember standing under the canopy lights, looking around at everyone and feeling so much love. That’s my advice to you when it comes time to plan your own wedding. Stay true to yourself, let the little things go and make it a party. If you do that, at the end of the night, there will just be love and laughter.”
